I've given a few seconds of thought to how the Borat movie could legally obtain consent from the people tricked into appearing in his film. The gag's been going on for a few years, so I assume he's got a strong legal position. A rundown of some of the legal arguments is here.
There's nothing like a pot of gold to get some interested in testing new legal theories.
I love that there are places in America where people actually talk like this:
"I got out there [when Borat sang the anthem]," Rowe told Newsweek, "and I say, 'Get the hell outta this dadgum building! Half the sumbucks in there are probably packin' heat, and they'll put you in front of the firing squad.' Boy, they got in their trucks and hauled boogie."
